Who in your opinion had the best and worst draft? Which player was the best pick and who was the worst pick at their slotted positions? And who was the steal of the draft?

I think the njn had a good draft. I liked there choice of brook lopez, it fits well with there solid defensive team.they should build around him and yi. they are rebuilding for the future and I say they started off well. they have a solid veteran vince carter, if they don't trade him. I think they can make a run towards the 7 or 8 seed

New Jersey and Portland both had very good drafts. I especially liked New Jersey going out and taking the Bay Area's best. :mrgreen:

Seattle choosing Westbrook was awful.

With Bayless, Love, Gallinari, Gordon, Lopez, and Augustin still there why Westbrook???? He wasn't even the 2nd best player on his team (Collison and Love).

NJ benefitted from CHA picking Augustin which surpised everyone. Lopez and I think they got Douglas Roberts are a good combo.

Portland has done a fantastic job the past 3 years.

ATL, DEN, and SEA did terrible.

that gallinari kid doesnt impress me too much. i was watching his highlights, and that didnt even impress me. he doesn't seem too coordinated.

Ugh, me and webelieve were talking about this yesterday... Fresno is NOT Northern California. I think that the cutoff between North and South California is right about Modesto. Anything north of it is ours. Anything south is theirs. I swear to you that it needs to be two seperate states, North and South California. I would be happy then...

At any rate, Fresno is Southern California.

I've always considered Fresno to be Central California and to be the cut off between Northern and Southern California. If I had to pick I'd put Fresno with Northern California, but I prefer to think of it as a no mans land since well...it's Fresno.

Douglas-Roberts and deandre jordan in the second round are huge steals. I could have sworn they would go first round Jordan was top 15 for a while and CDR mid to late first round. CDR is a guy who is a good team player and will have some sort of impact.

There really could be 4-5 states:
